To catch up on the previous episodes please visit www.wellspringoflifeinternational.com. For this week we look at Experience
E xperience God
P ower of His Might
An experience can be defined as a “practical contact with and observation of facts or events or an event or occurrence which leaves an impression on someone.”
It can also be said that an experience can be an accumulation of encounters over time.
Experience can be said to be a great teacher of life and also can help navigate the journey for better understanding and knowledge. What is your experience of God? What can you say to be your observation of God and His ways? What kind of impression do you have of God and Why?
Please take time to ponder on these questions.
King David was one that had an intimate relationship with God, I often wonder how this came to be? And the Holy Spirit has taught me over the years that the secret place is where friendship with God is cultivated and nurtured. The secret place is where you know Him intimately, where you open up yourself to Him in every way. A place of vulnerability, of truth and of love.
God’s love is central to all of our experience in Him. It is central to our relationship in Him. Bask in His love and experience all that He is to us and more.
Psalm 23 speaks of King David’s God experience, it shows the intimate nature of his journey with God. Let us deepen our walk with God with striving to come into a place where we rest in His love. God is primarily Love before Justice etc. Come to Him as you as and let Him love you like no one can ever. It is an amazing experience.
1The Lord is my best friend and my shepherd. I always have more than enough.
2 He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love. His tracks take me to an oasis of peace, the quiet brook of bliss.
3 That’s where he restores and revives my life. He opens before me pathways to God’s pleasure and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness so that I can bring honor to his name.
4 Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
You remain close to me and lead me through it all the way. Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear. I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
5 You become my delicious feast even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit, you give me all I can drink of you until my heart overflows.
6 So why would I fear the future? For your goodness and love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterward, when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!
Psalm 23 – The Passion Translation
Prayer: Oh Lord, I receive your love!
